    Seems like the near Northwest Side and the near Southeast Side are competing for the title of the most violent area of Grand Rapids, and throwing money at them and touchy-feely communication are the liberals’ way of solving the problem. Sorry, but it will accomplish nothing because it doesn’t change the character of the people responsible.

      Who in their right minds would want to live over there,if you are white?Fourth street,Alpine,Davis,McReynolds,Fifth st–any of those are areas where this could happen every day.Building more low income housing on 1400 Alpine just brings more of this activity in.We need higher priced houses to keep the gang members out.Think about it Bliss.

        I live in that area I’m a Caucasian female and have had absolutely no problems what so ever not during the day nor at night the violence in grandrapids is not only in the n.w or s.e there is violate everywhere
        Perhaps you should do something productive in those areas giving opportunity to underprivileged and uneducated children to help fix the problem instead just talking about it!
